The Santa Clarita Blue Heat FC is kicking off its second season of competition by partnering with the SCV Food Pantry to collect food donations from the community at all home games as well as participating at other food donation events throughout the Santa Clarita Valley during their upcoming season.

Founded in 2008, the SC Blue Heat FC is a professional women's soccer team based in the SCV and competing in the prestigious United Soccer League's (USL) Western Conference for the second season. The USL W-League has been rated second-best in the world, second only to the Women's Professional Soccer League (WPS).

"Our local and international players are proud to represent the Santa Clarita Valley and to especially give back to the community that so solidly supported the team during its first season," said Blue Heat owner Carlos Marroquin.

On Saturday, May 14, several Blue Heat players will be participating in the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Creekside Post Office on McBean Parkway at Creekside Road.

In addition, targeted food donations will be accepted at all home games in exchange for entry to the game. At the Blue Heats inaugural game on Sunday, May 22, spectators may bring four (4) boxes of macaroni and cheese for one admission at Valencia High School. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
